Kate Bush – Aerial and Via del Canneto

Kate Bush - Aerial Album Cover
On the post Via Del Canneto Sounds we forgot to mention two important other bird sounds heard on this tiny street: blackbirds and mourning doves. Maybe they went somewhere for the winter or maybe our windows are open more or maybe we are just listening more, but these bird sounds are more obvious now than in the winter. Every time we hear the blackbirds and doves in our mind Kate Bush’s double album Aerial gets switched on. On this album she uses these bird sounds. The mourning dove sound can be heard for example in Prelude, the song that starts the concept part of the double album. The blackbird sound can be heard on the sixth song of part two, Aerial Tal. The sound wave of the blackbird is in fact the album cover art. Travelmarx’s pick on the albums: Sunset.
